Hydropower generation relies on generating units, complex equipment consisting of rotating parts weighing hundreds of tonnes, installation that must be precise down to a fraction of a millimetre, and control systems of extreme sophistication.

Supported by a seasoned multidisciplinary team, Génitique designs, supports and supervises projects to refurbish and install generating units.
